      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Coyote dog

Recommended Posts

Well the new lab had a great waterfowl season, but with everything freezing up I've switched to coyote mode. Plugged in Calling All Coyotes 2 and didn't take long for the dog to show interest. He absolutely loves watching duck hunting on tv, but he almost showed more interest in the coyotes on the screen.

He's sitting here trying to figure out what's going on. He was up next to the screen but after I went to get the camera and laughing so hard he wouldn't go back up there again.

CAC2 is a riot when the dogs catch on.

My old lab ran into, no he plowed into the tv one night when I was watching CAC2 and a 'yote was walking a path in the grass towards the camera.

I've never laughed so hard in my life.

you know they acutually use dogs for coyote hunting besides the normal pushing yotes outa the woods. I read that some people would send the dog out and the dog would find the coyotes and basically say "here i am come and eat me" and the dog would take off running back to its owner. The owner waits for the dog to come back and boom theres a coyote. I think in this instance they were using the jack russel tarriers. There was a couple other ways they would hunt them with dogs also. Pretty neat article.

Decoying with dogs is a very effective way to hunt coyotes when they are territorial. The coyotes are not looking to eat the dog! The dog is a threat in the coyotes territory. Usually the dog doesn't just take off. The hunter usually starts with a series of howls, or rabbit distress calls, when a coyote is in sight, the owner sends the dog into the coyotes view. once the coyote has sensed the dogs presence the owner calls the dog back, and usually the coyote follows the dog, for a shot. Its a very effective way to kill coyotes when the hold up at 500 or farther. I have a few friends that work for the ADC that use dogs for decoying.

Yeah thats pretty close to what i read. It was a while ago that i read it and couldn't remember the whole just of it. But you seemed to hit it right on.

I think it would be pretty cool to try it once.

I saw them shoot a couple of coyotes on some outdoors show once where they decoyed them in with two dogs. Pretty neat for sure.

ya it would be really cool until the yote gets a hold of the dog

To be honest any good size dog can hold its own with a coyote.

Wow this thread took a turn! I actually had never heard of using a dog to decoy coyotes, but that sounds pretty interesting.

I would certainly think a medium or large dog could hold its own against a coyote, they're pretty small.

    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.
